Hi there! I’m so excited to have the chance to share a release day review for a new erotic suspense novel from the writing team of LP Dover and Heidi McLaughlin. VIEWING ROOM is the second book in the Society X series, but fully enjoyable as a standalone.
About the book:
Viewing Room Rules:
The rules of Society X are simple . . . break them and you’re out.
Rule #1 – No names
It doesn’t matter if you want to know, it’s forbidden.
Rule #2 – No exchanging numbers
It doesn’t matter if you want to call, it’s forbidden.
Rule #3 – Everything is to remain strictly anonymous.
It doesn’t matter if you want to tell, it’s forbidden.
Whatever your desire.
Whatever your fantasy.
The Viewing Room will make it happen.
For Kennedy Vaughn, it’s an escape.
For Hunter Miles, entering the Viewing Room means he’s been selected.
What you witness in the viewing room will have you asking for more . . .
Attorney Kennedy Vaughn is starting over. Her partner and best friend booked Kennedy’s divorce party at the posh sex club, Society X, and they intend to have some fun ogling the hottest men in Portland, Washington. Kennedy is drawn to stripper Hunter from the start, and her co-workers chip in to buy her a lap dance in the Viewing Room, an exhibitionist suite in the exclusive club.
While the expected happens, it’s the end of the night that sets Kennedy’s workaholic world off its axis. Hunter’s in the parking lot when Kennedy leaves, and he’s down for more than just a game of Show and Tell. How can this straight-laced divorcee do the nasty in her own car’s front seat? Well…it took some wrangling. That said, it’s never going to happen again. And, when she literally runs into Hunter at her neighborhood Starbuck’s? Yep, that bathroom sex will NOT happen again. And, when Hunter turns up as one of the interns of her law practice? Okay, okay, no desk sex happens. But Kennedy and Hunter can’t keep their hands off each other when they are off the clock. It’s all heady and exciting, until Kennedy’s friend Jennifer turns up wanting a divorce from her (possibly) cheating husband, Chad. Seems that Chad has lots and lots of work meetings that all seem to take place at Society X’s Viewing Room.
While Kennedy goes undercover to get the goods on Chad, Hunter’s biding his time in his role as stripper extraordinaire. Neither one likes that the other is in Society X, though Hunter doesn’t want to quit–he needs the money for school and expenses. Meanwhile, Kennedy struggles with the idea of her boyfriend being a sex worker, of a sort. In the past, Hunter would have eagerly provided whatever sexual service a patron wanted, for a fee. Now, though, he isn’t interested in any other women, and questions how fast he can save enough money to pay his bills so he can quit.
I thought this would be an erotic romance, and it is, but it’s also a bit of a thriller, because there are big problems going down, mostly concerning Jennifer and Chad. The dude’s bad, bad news, and I was glad we didn’t have all his viciousness on the page. Expect blood, scars and tears–and a few seriously harrowing moments. I do love me some male stripper POV–Hunter talked a good game, and stroked a good bit, but the man has a way with that filthy mouth, too. Kennedy was thoroughly satisfied. So, the plot was interesting, the sexytimes were creative and plentiful, and the end was HEA. Big time.
